It actually looks better in real life and what sold me on this was the pinks and greys. I have noticed that it's hard to find Maxis in pink tones, especially lighter pinks.
Although I love the jean jacket look with Maxi lengths and other styles, I'm just not a denim jacket kind of gal. I own a classic Levi one that I'm saving for when my daughter can fit into it. The compromise for a more rugged jacket look came when I bought this pink Tulle utility jacket from Ross more than ten years ago. It was an impulse buy but I was sold on the pink and soon found myself wearing it with jeans a lot.
Now that I want that jean jacket look over my maxi skirts, I have now brought out these jackets. I have one in mint green and a second larger pink one found at Goodwill.
Well, it popped back and I got an E-mail from ModCloth saying that it was now back in stock.
This is how I am justifying this purchase. I never pursued the J.Crew library skirt from the mid-2000's and I missed out on the Tommy Hilfiger book print shirt dress from last year.
Even though I just received it today, it already says that it's sold out. However, ModCloth is doing that great thing where if there is a great demand they will re-order. Just click your size and the "I need it" button and hope for the best.
Just to be clear, I'm not affiliated with them.
I found this vintage cardigan today at one of my favorite consignment stores for $17 and it's in perfect vintage condition. Although I want to cut back on shopping, I think certain vintage purchases are OK.
It's going to be hard not to color my hair the bronze shade I love, but I will see how long I can go.
